Comfort Focused End of Life Care in Knox County

hospice staffOriginally, a hospice was a place of shelter and rest for weary and sick travelers. Today, it is associated with a philosophy of providing compassionate care for individuals with life-limiting illnesses. At Good Samaritan Hospice, our hope is that we can offer comfort and dignity to the patient, family and caregiver at some deep level during their time of need.

Since some patients prefer to be at home, Good Samaritan Hospice delivers supportive care through home visits. In addition, services are also available to patients in nursing facilities and in an inpatient setting by utilizing the Good Samaritan Hospital facility.

Hospice Staff

Good Samaritan Hospice is staffed by an interdisciplinary health care team consisting of doctors, nurses, social workers, hospice aides, clergy, therapists and trained volunteers. Together, we are able to provide comprehensive care tailored to meet the needs of patients and families by including social, emotional and spiritual support.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering with Good Samaritan Hospice is an opportunity to make a difference for those in need. Volunteer options include providing respite and support for family and caregivers; doing office work, such as filing and answering telephones; and assisting in our bereavement program. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, contact Good Samaritan Hospice at 812-885-8035 or 800-604-9203.

staffBereavement Services

Bereavement services are available to patients and their families for the duration of hospice care and for 13 months following the patient’s death to lend support through the grieving process. The Hospice Bereavement Team consisting of experienced staff and trained volunteers provide visits and phone calls for support.

Many of our bereavement services, events, and programs are also available to the community. In addition to a weekly support group for adults at the Hospice House, individuals or families may schedule a session for grief support by calling the hospice office. Grief camps are used to educate, empower and equip children and teens with healthy grief and coping skills. Hospice also offers two opportunities throughout the year to memorialize your loved ones; the Spring Memorial and the Light Up a Life Ceremony, which takes place in the fall.
